Question about Heating & Cooling

I have a propane Empire Wall Heater. Soot falls on the floor around the heater.. I have taken the heater apart in the past and cleaned out the ducts. But it still does it. Is there a possibility the burners are shot?

Low flame and heat output want 2 clean burners etc


This can be done by using an air compressor. Just simply blow out the orifices and the injection tube. That will clean everything out. This may also be a propane pressure problem. Try cleaning it first and then check the inches of water on propane or natural gas.

What causes black soot to smoke up our complete house with ventless logs


Hi,
Take the pilot and burnner assembly all apart and blow it out with compressed air then reassemble and make sure that the air shutter is totally open. The soot is cause by a bad air/fuel misture that is too rich and cause carbon to form from incomplete combustion. If the burner continues to make soot then reduce the gas pressure to the gas log at the pressure regulator.

Is this unit originally set up for natural gas? If so, the burner oriface and the gas valve need to be retro-fitted to propane. This is something only a qualified service technician should attempt as an incorrect retro-fit could cause an explosion resulting in someone getting hurt or even killed.

Soot coming from Wall Heater


The fuel mix it too rich. There should be a place where the gas hose goes into the burner part, and an adjustment where you can adjust how much air it gets. The flame should be almost 100% blue. It can make the grates glow another color, but the flame should be mostly blue.
